Fedja is NOT hypothyroid after all !!!

I'm soooooooooooooo happy...still can't believe it!!
Today I got the test result back from Hemopet (Jean Dodds) and ALL of Fedja's thyroid values are NORMAL ! .T4, free T4, T3, free T3 and TGAA are ALL within the NORMAL range. The results are very clear, no doubt about it...he is NOT hypothyroid!
So glad I found the courage to take him off his meds and test him again at Dr. Dodds laboratory. On the other side I feel so bad i didn't do it earlier, 'cause he has been getting the thyroid meds for nothing for almost a year .
Luckily, according to Jean Dodds once you stop with thyroid meds thyroid goes back to work, off course if it is working properly in the first place, so it is not damaging for the thyroid gland.
Today when I got the results in my email, I was afraid to open it. I was really hyperventilating about it. I first made a cup of coffee for myself, and lighten a cigarette (I have to quit one beautiful day, not giving up!). Then I took a deep breath and when I finally read those...for the very first time in my whole life I was crying from happiness! (And I'm not someone who cries easily.)
My little precious boy is healthy and well. I have never loved a dog like I love my sweet Fedja..so it means a world to me (not having any kids he is really like a child to me)! It is celebration time !
